I was thinking since we have a thread on what models we buy it would be nice to have one to show what supplies each of us are buying to build those models :lol: .

Today I received this little package from Japan. It contained some extra supplies I needed to continue with my work :p , 1 large(1kg) can of Work's Mori-Mori Polyester Putty!! Yeah I so needed that. Three cans of Mr. Top Coat in Flat, Semi-Gloss and Gloss. Bunch of Hobby Color clear paints for making skin tones. Last is a Wave cutting mat for masking tape cutting, this one has a bunch of small circles and squares on it that my large Fiskars mat doesn't.. it came with a ruler/cutting wheel that I'm not sure I'll use much.

Since I want to start doing Scratch-built Garage Kit models from the very beginning of the process, I started to get some of the supplies and tools I needed a few weeks ago. After consulting the sculptor tutorial website links here, I made the first of my purchases at a great shop that specializes in Imported Japanese Toys and Collectibles in Chelsea here in the CITY, called Image Anime Co. (http://www.imageanime.com/). I got a package of Tamiya Polyester Putty, Tamiya Epoxy Putty ( smooth surface ), Tamiya Extra Thin Cement, Tamiya Finishing Abrasives ( ultra fine set ), and a can of Tamiya Grey Surface Primer.

Now last week, I managed to finally make a trip to the awsome The Complete Sculptor (http://www.sculpt.com/) store, down in the SOHO area. This place has *EVERYTHING* you would ever need if you want to do any type of modeling , casting, and sculpting.
I bought a block of white Sculpty III, Two boxes of Super Sculpey, a bottle of Sculpey Clay Softener, a Pasta Machine to kneed the polymer Sculpey clay, Aluminum Wire ( 1/16", the smallest gauge I saw there ) for armature of the model, two scuplting Kemper tools ( # W21 and # W22 ), and a pakage of 100 heavy duty disposable gloves. I wanted to also purchase a set of sculpting tools, but at $30 for the smallest set ( and that I was close to past my purcasing limit! ), I decided to postpose getting that for the time being.

Right now, I'm in the process of drawing various character designs for my first model figure, so as soon as I decide which one I'll begin to do, I'll let you all know!

Yes, it's an amazing place, it has so much stuff for sculptors, casters, etc. If You ever get a chance to come to New York, you should definitely visit! They even have sculpting and casting classes ( I wish I could take them, but my schedule is wacky! ).

BTW, chimera, where are you located?

I got a Package from Sweden today :D . Finally a new pair of eye glasses...my old Giorgio Armani ones were from around 1997 eek way out of style. My eyeglass technician lets call him...Joa :p picked out and made for me a sweet pair of Tom Ford glasses. Their super light and fit perfectly. The lack of glare or scratches still amaze me ::thumb . I'm very happy with them!! And if you need eyeglasses to see then their a very important tool to have. ;)
